Fun Finds

Good Morning Ladies.

I have some fun items to share with you today.  Yesterday, Ms. Z and I had a lazy day running around town getting a few errands accomplished.  Much to my delight, we had a little time to stop in at the thrift shop.  It had been a long time since the last visit and I was beginning to feel withdrawal symptoms.  We popped in for a quick glance and man 'o man did I hit the jackpot.

Two new creamers and a table runner quickly jumped into my cart.

A pretty silver piece and some gorgeous crocheted trim quickly joined in on the fun.

And since a girl can never have too much silver, I picked up this footed bowl too.

The best part - - not just one - - but two soup tureens were found.
This has been an item on my wish list for ages.  Imagine my delight to find two for under $12!

And last but not least, this sweet little clock called out to be included.
She'll be a great addition to my collection of clocks.
For now I think I'll use her atop some books on my bedside table to give me a little something to smile about.

Have you found any fun finds lately?



  1. Great finds, Robin~ especially the wonderful tureens!

  2. Lovely Robin, I like the tureens too!

  5. What great finds! You are so lucky...I can never find such treasures! Love the silver, and you know how I like all white dishes!!

  6. I love what you found, those are exactly the things that I would be looking for, minus the runner, I have too many now. But, no, I have not found any little treasures for quite some time now. I won't be shopping until Spring comes, then new inspiration will hit and I will need to hit GW then.
    Hugs, Cindy
